Disc Decompression Therapy


Utilizing the Cox Technique and Cox Decompression Table

Cox Technique as a disc decompression therapy is an alternative to surgery.

You don't have to live in debilitating pain. Whether you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, neck pain, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, as well as syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine,   Cox Technique and Disc Decompression Therapy may be for you.

This gentle, non-surgical therapy can provide lower back pain relief, sciatica pain relief, and is a state-of-the-art therapy for neck pain relief, bulging or degenerative disc disease, and lumbar pain.

The gentle distractive forces of the Cox Decompression Technique create a release of disc pressure of the spine with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning, to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area. You'll experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes.

Therapy for disc decompression is typically prescribed in a series of treatments.  The initial 12 visits will be over a course of 4 to 6 weeks transitioning from passive to active treatments as you respond, with most patients feeling pain relief as few as 6-10 treatments. Most patients are released from treatment after 6-8 weeks, however, some patients require more intensive or more lengthy treatments.  Dr. Loechinger will discuss the most approriate level of care for you based on a conservative clinical choice of preference.

A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization muscles is a vital part of Cox Decompression Therapy. Exercise and adjunctive therapies such as  muscle stimulation, laser, and cold therapy can assist in rehabilitation of these structures. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc, but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back and neck.

Regular home exercise and periodic visits to our office will help in maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence. Clinical results of this type of therapy have been effective in over 75% of the patients treated and most patients find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments utilizing the Cox Spinal Decompression Therapy.

After taking your history and completing a orthopedic and neurologic examination Dr. Loechinger will review your x-rays and MRI.  If you are a canidate for this non-invasive procedure we will tell you so and begin treatment.  If Cox Spinal Decompression is not warranted for your condition we will tell you that also and explain treatment options even if does include medications and surgery...we are here to help no matter what it takes.  

Hopefully Cox Spinal Decompression will be your answer for more information see "What is Spinal Decompression".
